Netflix is Going to Drop One Movie a Week For All of 2021

Credit: Netflix
As Netflix nears 200 million subscribers, it promises an aggressive slate with new movies every week. 

They say that content is king, and I definitely believe it. As we get into the depths of the streaming war, platforms are battling each other. That's never been more true. Now, Netflix is upping the ante. They are guaranteeing their 193 million subscribers a new film every week in 2021. And some weeks, they'll have more than one new film. 

There are 71 unique titles, covering acquisitions, adaptations, and original ideas. 

To break this news, Netflix made a video release with Dwayne Johnson, Melissa McCarthy, Halle Berry, Jason Momoa, Amy Adams, Ryan Reynolds, Chris Hemsworth, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Check it out below!  

The stories range from superheroes to westerns, thrillers, rom-coms, action, comedy, and sometimes all of those things combined.

Some of the more popular titles include the mega-budgeted heist film Red Notice, starring Gal Gadot, the Rock, and Ryan Reynolds.

There's The Harder They Fall with Regina King and Idris Elba, as well as Don’t Look Up, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ariana Grande, Timothee Chalamet, Kid Cudi, and Meryl Streep.

While not all the titles have exact release dates yet, you can expect one to drop each week.

Time for Netflix to initiate negotations with movie theater chains. For a test to see if it works, I would strongly suggest... screenings of many films such as Roma, The Irishman, El Camino and Mank to see if it does work. Might attract audiences.

I saw Roma in a movie theater in Washington DC. It was a great experience. I would have enjoyed The Irishman in a theater too. But anyway, they seemed open to the idea with Roma, I don't know what they'll do in the future.

I was making a point. They should begin talks with every theater chains, make deals, find a solution the problems they've had for so long. Who knows?

Lots of money went into these films. It is nice to see them, plus some actors who couldn't get directing jobs before in high profile films, now they can try their hand on it. However, my problem with the strategy is that while they mostly showed on the trailer all the action films (about 90% of what was shown was action/thriller), if you actually read that catalog (Variety has a listing of genre for these), only about 20% of the films are action. And only 1 sci-fi. It's like knowing that audiences like action, and the trailer for the films showcase that, but what they actually deliver at the end is mostly dramas and family movies. Just saying.

Drop??? Why the heck would they do that when things are going so well??? OH, you mean the ridiculous new meaning of "drop"! Back in my day, "drop" meant omit/delete/get rid of/cancel. Now it means introduce/release/create. I'm only 62 but I'm already feeling like a curmudgeon! :-)
